With a compact, durable design and no external AC power supply required, the U224-4R4-R fits almost anywhere in your workspace. Transfer rates up to 12 Mbps ensure that your peripheral performance will not suffer at any distance. The U224-4R4-R features a green, RoHS-compliant design.

U224-4R4-R Applications

Turn Your Home or Office PC into a Powerful Workstation

With the ability to connect four USB peripherals up to 150 ft. away to your computer, the U224-4R4-R allows your PC to become a powerful, multi-faceted workstation. The U224-4R4-R is ideal for home or office applications with permanently installed or hard-to-move USB peripherals in an area that is inconvenient for workstation placement.

Greater Distance—Greater Flexibility

By extending the range in which a peripheral can be connected to a computer via USB beyond the normal 16 ft. distance limitation, the U224-4R4-R allows for unsurpassed workstation flexibility. Peripherals can now be located in a different area or completely different room from the workstation with which they interact over USB. And, with transfer rates up to 12 Mbps, performance never suffers.

U224-4R4-R Feature Focus

Plug-and-Play Convenience

With no drivers or software to download or install, the U224-4R4-R is completely plug-and-play right out of the box. Simply connect the local unit to your computer, the remote unit to the USB peripherals via a device cable and connect the units with a standard Cat5e/6 cable like the Tripp Lite N202-series. Your peripheral will have immediate communication with your PC. The unit requires an external AC power supply (included).

Compact, Functional Design

The U224-4R4-R's compact design allows to it to be located almost anywhere in your workstation. With a built-in flexible cord, the local unit allows for versatile placement around your computer. The unit's ports are housed in a durable casing and the built-in LEDs allow for complete status assessment at a glance.
